The game against USC left me wondering who the future quarterback at ASU will be. The switch from senior Danny Sullivan to freshman Brock Osweiler during the second half was crucial to the game’s momentum.

After throwing two interceptions, it was necessary for Sullivan to exit.

Osweiler completed three passes for 65 yards on an 80-yard, third-quarter drive, including a 23-yard touchdown to senior wide receiver Chris McGaha.

Not bad for a freshman in his first real action of the season.

Osweiler will be in the mix to start next year along with Steven Threet, who transferred to ASU from Michigan this year and has two years of eligibility remaining.

Threet started eight games at Michigan last year as a redshirt freshman and is sitting out this season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Samson Szakacsy, who will be a junior next season, could also be a candidate for the job if a lingering elbow injury doesn’t slow him down.

In the meantime, coach Dennis Erickson did not specify which quarterback he will start Saturday against Oregon.

I hope Osweiler gets his first start.
